On your next trip to the capital of the Bahamas make sure to consider our Nassau car hire services. The city was founded sometime around 1650 and it was called Charles Town initially, however it was then renamed after Fort Nassau. Nowadays Nassau is by far the largest and most populous city in the Bahamas containing somewhere around eighty percent of the population.
The city is served by the Nassau Airport called Lynden Pindling Airport which is located about ten miles from the city’s center. It is only connected to the city via fixed rate taxis but a better choice would be to employ our Nassau car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Since the Bahamas are part of the British Commonwealth you should expect the roads in Nassau to have a very British feel, with British traffic signs, the odd roundabout and of course driving on the left, so pay attention when driving and when crossing the street.
Once in Nassau you can start by visiting its “old town” which features a very interesting blend of abandoned buildings and the typical brightly painted Caribbean buildings. You only have to walk for a about ten minutes uphill from the city center and you get to see the pink Parliament Building which features a statue of Queen Victoria sitting on her throne in front of it.
The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas features art from the precolonial era to the present day but some visitors will surely find the Pirate Museum interesting since it features a recreated pirate town, a pirate ship as well as a pirate battle.
Fort Fincastle is a small fort built in 1793 which overlooks the city from a small nearby hill, the fort displays several cannons.
These are only a few of the attractions that the city has to offer and with the help of our Nassau car hire services you can see these sights and many more.
